To many, it breached one of the core principles of the world order – the inviolability of internationally recognized borders -- and it turned Russias relations with the West from bad to dire. While news accounts tended to focus on recent events and connected Crimea’s fate to the toppling of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, more probing analysis looked to the peninsula’s modern history, including attempts by Russian nationalists in the mid-1990s to press for Crimea to be unified with Russia. Crimea: The Anatomy of a Crisis is a compilation of articles from TOL and Transitions, TOL‘s print predecessor, tracing events and issues dealing with this disputed region over the past 20 years. Several articles also address what has become of Crimea almost one year later, as the violent struggle in eastern Ukraine has already pushed the annexation out of the headlines and its people out of the limelight. With an introduction by Peter Rutland, professor of government at Wesleyan University and an expert on Russian-Ukrainian relations.
